With 2013 upon us, we thought we’d break out a new champagne cocktail. But we want to keep the celebration going so we’ve included ways to enjoy bubbly year round.
We’ll kick this off with a drink to toast the New Year.
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 tsp simple syrup or powdered sugar
- champagne or other sparkling wine
- cherry/orange slice
Put a handful of ice in a tall glass. Pour in gin, simple syrup and juice and give it a swirl. Top with champagne. Garnish with a cherry and/or orange slice.
